The UN Economic and Social Council's (ECOSOC) 2021 Youth Forum will take place in April 2021 in New York, during ECOSOC's 2021 session.
The 2021 Forum’s discussions will be guided by the overall theme of the 2021 ECOSOC and HLPF: “Sustainable and resilient recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, that promotes the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development: Building an inclusive and effective path for the achievement of the 2030 Agenda in the context of the decade of action and delivery for sustainable development”. Consideration will also be given to the group of SDGs decided by Member States for in-depth discussions at the 2021 HLPF, namely, SDGs 1, 2, 3, 8, 10, 12, 13, 16 and 17.
The 2020 Youth Forum was deferred to the ECOSOC 2021 session due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
